BWW Blog: Naomi Melvin - Somebody's Eyes: Q&A with Lisa Stevens!
by Guest Blogger: Naomi Melvin - Jul 25, 2016

Recently I sat down with our director and co-choreographer, Lisa Stevens, to chat about our version of Footloose and her personal process in relation to building theatre. As I've said before, we are lucky. As someone who has intensively observed the rehearsal process (I love rehearsal), I have sat in awe of Lisa's direction. Specifically, I find her vocabulary lends itself beautifully to moving the work in a forward direction. Her style is streamlined along with plenty of room to play. And Lisa is so underneath each character and their relationships that, with her guidance, there's a stronger connection between the actor and his or her role. With her list of credits and accolades, Lisa has brought the know-how of the business to rehearsal, imparting on us indispensable tools essential to the artist's working life. As the cast filtered out for lunch, I joined Lisa behind the creative team's table and opened our discussion.  (more...)

BWW Blog: Sam Weber - Selling Out: the Costs and Benefits of Commerciality 
by Guest Blogger: Sam Weber - Jul 18, 2016

Since you're on Broadway World, chances are you're the type of person who is familiar with the concept of artist merit.  By that, I mean you're the person who appreciates the lengthy productions of Sunday in the Park with George just as much if not more (let's face it, way more) than you do a spunky production of familiar shows like Footloose or Grease (god bless those good old high school staples).  You're also probably the person who, although you secretly live every time you hear "Defying Gravity", is so over those mainstream shows.  Many college students would much rather revive Applause than they would something like Beauty and the Beast, but when you're breaking into the business or just starting out in production, finding the original artistic value in those "over-exposed" shows might be just what you need to build a reputation.
